24/09/2011 - I decided not to update the previous WIP of the dalek paintball gun [link]
since I quite like it. Instead I have added this new WIP to show the latest progress on the model.
I have started work on the compressed air tank. I was originally going to have the air feed run into the dalek's body and say the air was stored internally, but after experimenting I changed my mind and decided to hang the air tank on the dalek's waist band instead. The tank needs a bit more work around the nozzle, and a clip to hold it on to the dalek.
Updated 26/09/2011 to add detail to the tank's nozzle, a magnet to hold the tank to the side of the dalek, and to replace the coiled air hose with a flexible metal hose.
Updated 28/09/2011 to add a crude prototype hopper. I have had to change the proportions of the gun so that the hopper is further forward than originally intended. In its original position the hopper would have smacked the dalek in the head when the gun was raised. It's still a bit tight though.
Updated 29/09/2011. Yesterday's hopper was rubbish so I chucked it away and started a new one. It's better, but it does look kind of like a hairdryer. Further work is needed.
Updated 30/09/2011. This is my sixth attempt at the hopper and the first I'm remotely happy with, so it will have to do.
